It makes me think we should have priced it higher.
Still, the thing gives me hope. We have been struggling along with so many things lately that it feels like a huge weight is off our shoulders. Except of course, I'm already going onto the next thing. There's a storm and a fire in Tehachapi, you know! That's the kind of logic I use. It's flawed, I know, but it is mine.
Yet even with my goofy nervous logic, I still have hope. I have it when I read the positive feedback I get from other writers and readers about my work. I have it when reviewers say good things. I have it when I get another follower. Hell, I have it when I get to use the internet. But best of all, the world falls away when I am writing. There is nothing of my present struggles in that. The sky could fall, the earth open up, and WW3 break out - but I wouldn't notice. The story is everything. For a moment, it becomes my life.
That might seem strange and a little crazy, but I am after all, a writer. Aren't we all that way?
